SCP-521-KO

Item #: SCP-521-KO

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedure: Foundation's cover company has purchased the real-estate of SCP-521-KO. No entry of outsiders is allowed. A notice sign saying “No Entry. It is slippery. You can fall down” in front of the jetty should be maintained. One guard is to be assigned to a small sentry post at the entrance of the jetty.

In case of a civilian enters and trapped, a lighthouse of Site-64K is to shoot a strong beam of light toward the sea. Rescued civilian should be interrogated and released after Class C amnestic treatment.

Description: SCP-521-KO is a jetty towards the sea, located in Mujin City, South Jeolla Province, South Korea. It was created in 1970 as a piece of land art, and its wave breaking perfomance is nominal. The surface of jetty is wet and soaked usually, and it is too slippery to walk on the jetty.

The anomalous effect of the jetty will be manifest during very foggy morning or evening. If the subjects climb on the jetty and walk towards the sea when the heavy fog rises and nothing remain within visibility range, they will never reach the end of jetty however long they walked. And after walking about 10 m towards the sea, they cannot reach the opposite end of the jetty, i.e. cannot return to Mujin City. When the visibility is good, with no fog, this effect does not menifest. If the subject access the jetty from the sea using ship or helicopter, they can reach jetty's end of sea-side even when it is foggy. But if they walk more than 10 m, they cannot go back to jetty's end of sea-side.

When the subject are "trapped" on the jetty, if a strong source of light emits a beam of light from the sea or Mujin City, they can reach the side where the sorce of light exists. Otherly, if there is any visibility of the sea or the city as the fog lifts, they can reach the visible side. Thus if the subject are trapped on the jetty, just wait some time then they can be "released" as the fog clears.

However, keeping walking on the jetty would prevent the clear of fog "on the jetty." In recent test, a personnel on the jetty claimed that she walked for full time of a day, while the time ouside passed only 3 hours. The jetty's end of sea-side has a brass plaque, and it's contents can be read easily through the access from the sea.
